Easy to achieve overhead sound effects

Jamo has pulled off something pretty slick with the S 8 ATMs. These compact Dolby Atmos® enabled speakers attach to the top of compatible Jamo bookshelf and floor-standing speakers, and provide upward-firing special effects for movie soundtracks.

Each speaker has customized connectors on the bottom that plug directly into the matching speaker below. (The matching "base" speaker has an extra set of input terminals for your receiver's Atmos channel.) Sound effects bounce off the ceiling and down to your ears, putting you right in the thick of the action. Pretty cool, right?

Great addition to full room sound.

Crutchfield customer from W Valley City, UT on 4/26/2019

Really fill the room with audio. I've been extremely satisfied with the Jamos S 803, and knew that I had to get the Jamos S 8 ATM to finish the set, definitely glad I did. These sound great, when I stand up and walk around the room while listening to music they make it sound like its coming from all directions.

Pros: Great sound. Fit well with Jamos S 803s

Cons: Wish I could disassemble them to see whats on the inside, because if I ruin a Driver I want to know I can replace it

Better than BOSE

Crutchfield customer from Powhatan, VA on 4/25/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

A Denon 7.1 receiver is hooked up to these speakers. I also got the 5 speaker set to add these to. I had BOSE speakers hooked up to the same receiver in our last home. The sound from these speakers puts the BOSE to shame. The first movie we watched was Bohemian Rhapsody, and it was incredible. Better than the movie theater. The ATM speakers really fill in the sound. Crystal clear, beautiful. I also have a 300W powered subwoofer to round out the bass. I also love the style. It reminds me of the speakers/styling from the 1960s. Very cool looking. Highly recommended

Pros: Great sound and style

Cons: None

Outstanding Atmos speakers, was even able to get it to work with the Jamo S 805 by hack sawing banana plugs to hold the speaker wires in.

These get the job done.

Do these beat a dedicated ceiling mounted speaker? Probably not? Do they create a wall of sound that blankets you with joy and make your wife say things like "It's 3D sound". Yes. And yes dear, it is 3D sound. Just like it says on the box. ;) As a standalone speaker, this wouldn't be great but then again that's not how they're meant to be used. I ran bare speaker wires to the terminals on the feet in order to see how they sounded by themselves while pointed at me vs having them pointed at the ceiling. They're able to hit the high's considering there's no tweeter (Jamo is ran by wizards). Lows pretty much don't exist but that's not why you buy these at all. Plus that's what your sub is for. For those concerned about the frequencies these are able to hit, don't. They make all of the sounds that you need to hear. I played a few Dolby Atmos test videos and they were pretty awesome. They didn't always make me feel like the sound was coming from the ceiling in the middle of the room, but it definitely created a wall of sound when paired with my S803's. This made me 803's feel like they were 10 feet taller than they are, but leaning towards me at the top. It was still a really cool effect. For the price i'd buy them again. If you're on the fence about Atmos and don't want to slap speakers on the ceiling, then this is a fantastic way to go. My current living room height is 9 feet (non-popcorn), and we sit around 10 feet away from the tv.

Pros: They look great. They make my S803's feel like they're 15 feet tall. They make the S803's look more substantial than they are.

Cons: They weren't free?

These work good on top the Jamos S803 towers. Great ideal for bouncing sound from ceilings.

Pros: Ergonomics

SNAP IN SPEAKERS

Bob from Visalia, CA on 5/29/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The pictures in the ad did not show the back of the speakers, and it wasn't until I received them, that I found out, they are meant to be snapped into certain floor speakers. There are no posts on the back to insert or screw down any speaker wires. I called Crutchfield and asked for return labels (I bought 2 sets), and they sent them to me. But I did speak to someone in Support, who told me I can still use these by wrapping the speaker wires around the metal posts (that snap into a floor speaker), so that's what I did, along with throwing some black tape around them to keep the wires in place. As for how they sound, they are great. One set was an open box sale and the other set was a scratch and dent sale, so they saved me some money, but both sets were in perfect condition. They are not the best looking speakers out there, and they are a little bigger than most, but I like them. But to be honest with you, had I seen the back of the speaker without any way to connect the wires, I wouldn't have bought them.

Pros: Good price. Excellent sound. Good quality material.

Cons: They should have been listed (in bold letters), SNAP ON SPEAKERS

They look great and were very easy to add to my system. They do what they are designed to do. I'm looking forward to more movies and shows coming out in Dolby Atmos.

Product Research

Features

Jamo Studio 8 Series: The new Jamo Studio 8 series of loudspeakers has been engineered and designed to complement and seamlessly blend in today's modern environments and fashionable living spaces. Contemporary material and finish choices accentuate the clean, minimalist lines of this European design, while the compact cabinet architecture is an ideal solution for today's urban living environments.

Note: The Jamo Studio 8 series consists of Floorstanding loudspeakers (S805/S807/S809), bookshelf loudspeakers (S801/S803), center channel speakers (S81C/S83C), Dolby Atmos elevation speaker (S8ATM), and powered subwoofer (S808SW/S810SW).

Dolby Atmos Elevation Speakers: Recreate the incredible cinematic experience of Dolby Atmos with the S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker, which reflects Dolby Atmos height effects off the ceiling down to the listener, to create a truly stunning, 3-dimensional surround sound experience.

  • 4" Polyfiber Woofer: The Jamo S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is outfitted with a top-firing 4" Polyfiber woofer with rubber surround.
  • Sealed MDF Cabinet: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker features an acoustic suspension (sealed) MDF cabinet wrapped in a black vinyl with wood accents, and comes with a woven linen cloth grille.

Compatibility: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is only compatible with Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers. It does not offer any standard type of speaker terminal connector to be used with other loudspeaker systems.

Discrete Connections: Elegant metal fasteners atop the cabinet of Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers provide a chic, modern industrial look, but also serve as a connection point for the Jamo S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos elevation speakers (sold separately). This patent-pending design allows for all of the wire connections on the back of the loudspeaker, avoiding unsightly and messy speaker wire going all the way up to the Atmos module - for cinematic, completely immersive Dolby Atmos sound while preserving the beautiful aesthetic of the Jamo Studio 8 Series.

Note: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is only compatible with Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers. It does not offer any standard type of speaker terminal connector to be used with other loudspeaker systems.

Dolby Atmos Certified: Dolby Atmos takes surround sound to a completely new level, by adding the third dimension of height to the two dimensional front/back left/right 5.1 or 7.1 sound mix. In Dolby Atmos, the floor speakers create the sound "bed" and the Dolby Atmos Enabled elevation speakers are fed a separate, discrete signal to move "sound objects" around the room with pinpoint accuracy. The effect is totally convincing, and really elevates the home cinema experience to new heights.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I have a Jamo Speaker system already and got a new Marantz Receiver that supports full Atmos and needed the rear Atmos speakers. The Jamo speakers are an awesome affordable complete speaker system. [ Michael  Jan 28, 2019 ]

Q
Will these S 8 ATM's paired with the S 807 or S 809 towers be ok in a medium sized room with vaulted ceilings?
[ Tom  Feb 04, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
I have the S 807 and they do an excellent job and great sound.
[ Elbert  Feb 04, 2019 ]
A
That should be fine, mine are in a medium sized room and they sound terrific. The key is to use your receiver's set up tool to perfectly dial in the sound.
[ RICHARD  Feb 04, 2019 ]
A
They are small drivers. To be honest I'm not quite sure how vaulted ceilings will work in reflecting the sound. They are cosmetically nice looking speakers but may not have the power your looking for. Very light weight cabinets. I have them set up in a small room connected to an Arcam avr390 and the 4 Atmos tops are connected to an Arcam p1000 and i am happy with the sound but I don't necessarily push them too much.
[ Gabriel  Feb 04, 2019 ]
Q
Do you have to have the plug in module tower to use these or can you wire them separately and use with older Jamos?
[ Danludwig  Feb 25, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
You can use wires to connect them but you would be better off getting a different atmos module as you would just be winding the wires around The foot pegs of these modules.
[ Dustin  Mar 03, 2019 ]
A
Technically you could crimp some speaker wire to the two terminal posts that protrude from the bottom.
[ Robin  Mar 01, 2019 ]
A
No external jacks must be used with towers.
[ JOHN F F  Mar 01, 2019 ]
